Shrewsbury Town goalkeeper Harry Burgoyne has criticized some of his own fans and called for their ban following their FA Cup draw with Liverpool over alleged chants from Hillsborough.
The League One side suffered a 4-1 loss to the Reds in their third round clash on Sunday.
After the match, a video appeared on social media appearing to show Shrewsbury fans in Liverpool city center, allegedly performing in reference to the Hillsborough disaster.
The video was posted to Twitter, which showed a small group of Salop supporters chanting “f *** the 96” ahead of the game.
The vile taunts relate to the 1989 disaster which saw 96 Liverpool fans – now 97 after a coroner ruled Andrew Devine was unlawfully killed, making him the 97th victim last year – tragically losing the life.
In response to the clip, Burgoyne, who was on the bench in Shrewsbury’s loss to the Premier League, took to Twitter to call fans who allegedly participated in the chants.
